Three new crosswalks will be painted today, June 1, 2022, and new signage will be installed by the end of the week as part of the of 45 new crosswalks to be installed in the Town. Citizens can expect to see new crosswalks and signage at the intersections of Santa Fe Loop and Tuscany Way, Santa Fe Loop and Granville Fairway, and Park View Drive and Knollwood Way. These locations were chosen based on the recommendations from resident feedback as well as the Town’s transportation safety engineer, Lee Engineering.
The Prescott Valley Town Council’s Strategic Plan includes a Quality-of-Life goal to annually install and maintain 100 percent of possible crosswalk connectivity for safe streets. Areas of focus include entertainment districts, schools, parks, and other major pedestrian corridors. Lee Engineering evaluated the new crosswalk locations in accordance with established Federal guidelines for pedestrian safety, and Hawk Contracting, LLC is completing the work.
An interactive map of the approved crosswalks is available on the Town’s website by visiting Public Works and clicking on Roadway Improvements and then Crosswalk Project.
The Town in its 2022-2023 budget is planning a Phase B to the project which could include 25 more crosswalk locations. Residents are encouraged to suggest new crosswalk locations by contacting Deputy Public Works Director Ron Pine at 928-759-3035 or email@example.com/
